Roy Moffatt is a self-taught watercolorist who credits his art for teaching him to see the world. "Beauty and interesting compositions are everywhere if you look for them."
Painting with other artists has pushed Roy the most with exposure to other techniques and endless ways to see the world. Aquarella 9 Plus, in particular, has helped develop his plein air painting. Plein air painting has given him his sense of light and shadow, which he says makes painting interesting. Roy has personally studied the works and texts of Rex Brand and Milford Zornes. He has also attended a variety of workshops.
Roy grew up in Texas. In 1980, he moved to Southern California to practice medicine; he retired in 2010. Roy has since moved to Northern California where he enjoys the beauty of Folsom and surrounding areas—there's so much to explore and enjoy!
Roy is a member of the Folsom Arts Association, Sutter Street Artist, Watercolor Association of Sacramento Horizons, Watercolor West, and Gold Country Artists Gallery. Roy's Paintings have been accepted into shows with the Southern California Plein Air Painters Association and at VIVA Gallery through the Valley Watercolor Society. His paintings have hung at "Off Vine" in Hollywood, California; they are in many homes and offices in California, Texas and other states.
